    Recently I picked up an EZ Flash III, 2 Flash2advance cards and a GB bridge on ebay, all very reasonably priced. I've also seen Bung game boy flash cards. If there's something you can't find sooner or latter one will show up on ebay. I've had better luck finding rare items there then in trading fourms

    How about a pointer to the completed auction? I looked through the completed listings and couldn't find any of the devices you mentioned.

    isn't it against the rules to sell flash carts on ebay or something like that?

    I thought $61 was fair considering the rarity of the Flash2advance items. I can't find the other auctions.
    I see flash cards on ebay all the time. You just can't write "flash card" in the listing but this type of stuff does show up so if you really want something thats impossible to find it will most likly show up on ebay at some point.

    How lucky, a GB Bridge! I'd love to have one of those nifty things... But I seem to recall that it only works with F2As, right?

    Thats correct and not all versions are supported. What I think is cool is that the Bridge allows you to use the Gameboy bios to colorize gb games like Metroid II without simulating a palate. It fits in GBC as well as GBA. The only other way to colorize GB games would to be to get one of the gameboy cards that are still made but those can only fit a few games at a time.

    I'm pretty sure you can sell almost anything on Ebay I once saw a Militatry base for sale. It needed a lot of work lol.

    That's strange, there's not a single cart for sale on the Australian ebay. Maybe they crack down on it more over here.

    What's the real point of old GBA carts, when you can still get stuff like the EZ Flash V? Is it just a collector's item?

    EDIT: Oh, I see, it's only DS lite compatible, so I guess people are using them for GBAs or DS Phats.
